Icarus — I named this after a crater on the moon. I'm trying to brush up on my digital painting. I used a few textured brushes (some customized in Photoshop and some I made from my photos) for the cloudy, dusty nebula in the background, but didn't detail it too much because I wanted the focal point to stand out more.
This is an imaginative piece, an image in my mind that I tried to bring to life in Photoshop. I might take the PSD out later and add some more noticeable stars, but that's it. This took forever! :)
I resized this down from 3000x2000, so I may have sacrificed some detail in doing so. Sorry about that.
